The SA-18 Plastic Limit Roller device consists of top and bottom roller plates separated by 1/8 in. (3.2mm) side rails. Contact surfaces of the plates are covered with sheets of special adhesive-backed absorbent paper that adds no fiber to soil samples. Up to five soil samples can be rolled simultaneously between the moving top plate and fixed bottom plate. Soil thread diameters are reduced by back and forth action until the top plate contacts the 1/8 in. (3.2mm) side rails, preventing further thread size reduction.
The SA-18 is supplied complete with integral top plate handle, a pad of 50 sheets of adhesive paper, and instructions for use.
